Expensive, but awesome. If I lived here, I would be getting the protein smoothie every day.

Avocado toast is NOT like the toast you eat at home. It is messy but delish!!

Don’t be disturbed by the name; they don’t kill anything in front of you. This is a vegan place, just one block west of the main street. It’s a spotless, new-looking, health-food “café” (not actually the place for coffee) whose smoothies contain no dairy milk (they use something called “mylk” instead). We tried some fruit smoothies and mixed-vegetable juice, and found them entirely reasonable, and quite refreshing.

They also make a variety of vegan salads and sandwiches. Not open for dinner. A few dedicated parking spots out front, otherwise park free on the street. No steps. Some indoor seating.

I've always liked Glow's food and much of my feedback from an earlier review has been addressed. It's nice to see responsiveness. Now, if I could only get an entree AND a fresh juice for under $25 -- but that's probably not realistic given the labor and ingredients involved. I wholeheartedly recommend Glow. Kudos to Molly and her team!!!

We always look for a vegan restaurant in town when we travel. I was so happy to find an option in Ketchum! This is a cute little place and my family ordered juices, salads, hand rolls, tacos and their version of grilled cheese. The kale salad and avocado toast were by far the best from the group. The juices, salads, and hand rolls were pre-made rather than made at the time of order. My daughter ordered a bowl of black beans which, after waiting a very long time, were cold. We asked the helpful staff for re-heating and they were served to us only slightly warmer. As I looked around, a few locals were enjoying the various toast options. I will be sure to follow suit next time we visit this quaint restaurant. They also have a well-stocked small retail section with supplements, glass water bottles and "clean" cleaning/laundry products. If you are like me and need to grab a daily green juice you can't go wrong if you are ok with knowing it's not made to order (at least that was the case for us). All in all, we were grateful to have a vegan lunch option despite some dishes outshining others.

Dear Coconut Lemon,

Thank you so much for visiting Glow! It sounds like you tried some of our best sellers - the kale salad, avocado toast and tacos are our biggest hits along with our green juices. We're so glad you enjoyed them and we love having healthy families in!

One thing to note - our food is "pre-made" as you say, on site, fresh each morning, and stocked in the grab and go case super fresh, usually within a half hour of being purchased. The greens and produce are locally grown and picked within 100-200 miles of Ketchum. This isn't "pre-made" food in the sense of coffee shop products stocking ice cream and other goods made off-site long ago, this is food that has been sourced, created, and packaged on site and super fresh, grown locally and incredibly vibrant each morning. We create options for people to get in and out quickly to go on with their busy days and accommodate the higher demand at this time of year. And our customers appreciate this oh so much.

Our kale salads, spring rolls, etc were created yesterday several times throughout the day, and almost always within a half hour of consumption, and our juice is fresh cold pressed each morning, so that it is fast, fresh, and super nutritious, more so than waiting 15 minutes for a centrifugally juiced green juice with doesn't retain as high of a nutritional value with as clean of a process. It's not "made to order", but it is made just prior to ordering, which we feel is even better at this busy time of year for our service, quality, and customer appreciation.

Yes, We would definitely recommend the veggie toast, another of our most popular items next time you visit. And we're glad you enjoyed the store, we search around the country for high quality, niche brands to bring to our upbeat, fun and healthy little town. The raw cacao truffles and chocolate torte are other sure favorites. We hope you have a wonderful visit.

~Molly and the Glow staff

Fresh, savory, organic vegan meals are the daily fare at Glow Cafe with a delightful ambiance and patio, along with friendly service from knowledgeable staff. Make this lunch spot your "go-to" place for delicious, nutritious eating. Glow also serves mouthwatering desserts, fresh pressed juices, fresh almond milk, luscious smoothies and scrumptious daily specials. I give it 5 stars!!!
